I've never had a Raspberry Pi in my hands. I'm just looking for a device to perform a specific single task and I wonder if Raspberry Pi could be my solution.
My situation is this: I've got a portable scanner with USB port. One button allows to scan a document directly to a flashdrive connected to this port. What I want to do is to connect Raspberry Pi instead of a flashdrive to USB port in the hope that it would automatically send recieved files to cloud storage (for ex. dropbox) via wifi.
It's very important that it would do it automatically. The device must be configured once and have no need to connect keyboard, mouse or monitor ever since. It would be switched off daily so it must also boot up without the need for user interference and go to a state that allows recieving and sending files to cloud automatically.
Is this possible to achieve with Raspberry Pi?
